We work together as a team, sharing good practice, and offering support when it is needed. Any new member of the team who is willing to share ideas and make a positive contribution will be made very welcome and will enjoy working with us. The school and the faculty aim to provide effective support through an induction programme tailored to meet your needs. We enjoy good facilities in the languages block, with data projectors in each room, three interactive whiteboards and a suite of computers and laptops. We run a programme of extra-curricular visits, including theatre visits to support drama texts studied at all key stages, and plan other events to enrich the curriculum. We would welcome a colleague who can contribute further to these opportunities to enrich the curriculum for all students. Support and praise systems are well established in the faculty, with mutual professional support and the effective backing of LT on a whole-school basis.

I hope that, when you have considered the information, both about the English Faculty and the school, you will feel that Farlingaye is a place where you could develop your expertise while making a genuine contribution to the school.

5 Our aims as English teachers: VISION OF THE FACULTY 1 To help students to become effective communicators through speech and writing, with the ability to use language creatively and accurately; 2 To increase students appreciation and knowledge of the English language and help them to enjoy the rich diversity of its literature, past and present; 3 To encourage the habit and enjoyment of personal reading; 4 To help students towards being independent and self-critical in their studies; 5 To engage students as citizens with the ability to explore and understand social issues explored in literary and non-fiction texts; 6 To share professional expertise and be mutually supportive as colleagues. ENTITLEMENT Students experiencing lessons in this faculty are entitled to: 1 A full programme of study, incorporating the demands of the National Curriculum; 2 Well planned, well resourced, and well-paced lessons which incorporate a variety of activities; 3 Differentiated work appropriate to their needs, as well as tasks which cater for different learning styles; 4 A positive learning environment, including stimulating display, where any examples of poor behaviour are dealt with using school systems; 5 Work to be marked regularly as part of an ongoing process of verbal and written dialogue which enables them to understand how to progress; 6 Praise for their achievements, using a variety of methods to communicate their successes to others; 7 Sensitive handling of issues and respect for differing opinions; 8 Teachers whose love of literature, language and learning is infectious!

6 CURRICULUM Key Stage 3 All KS3 students have four periods per fortnight of 100 minutes. In Years 7 to 8, we teach students in their mixed ability groupings. Year 9 students are grouped into higher and intermediate level classes. We work closely with the Learning Support Faculty and provide in-class support for classes as appropriate as well as withdraw some students for skill-specific workshops. The aim is that all students should receive full, mainstream access to the curriculum, with differentiation as appropriate. Students complete a series of extended homework tasks throughout the year that encourage the students to be more independent in their learning. Key Stage 4 In Years 10 and 11, we operate a three-tier banding system, in which all students prepare for IGCSE English Language (Cambridge) and GCSE English Literature, (AQA A); some weaker students study AQA IGCSE English Literature. From September 2015 we are studying EDUQAS English Language and AQA English Literature. SEN and internal faculty support are provided, especially to the smaller Foundation and Intermediate groups. We are sensitive to the varying nature of particular year cohorts and adapt our grouping patterns each year to provide the best learning environment for our students. Students have four 100 minute lessons per fortnight in Year 10 and five in Year 11. Homework is set weekly in accordance with whole school guidelines. Sixth Form English is a very popular and successful subject at post-16 study; nearly one hundred and fifty students take either English Literature (WJEC) or English Language (AQA B; WJEC from September 2015). Students have six 100 minute lessons per fortnight and are taught by two members of staff who divide the teaching of the course according to their expertise. In 2014, we added A-Level Film Studies (WJEC) to our portfolio and we are encouraged by the enthusiasm shown by the students and results at AS in This year, we also deliver Creative Writing (AQA) but will not continue with this in 2016 due to the government stopping it as an A level course. In addition to advanced levels of study, we offer an enhanced GCSE course for students wishing to re-sit the English qualifications in either November or June.

7 ACCOMMODATION AND RESOURCES We are based in a purpose-built block, which we share with the Modern Foreign Languages Faculty. We currently occupy eleven classrooms and in addition have two group rooms, a number of stock rooms and a Faculty Team Room. There is an open area which can be used for break out sessions or drama activities and a suite of computers for class use. All areas are well furnished with ample space for exciting display. More display boards are situated in shared areas and we are very proud of the high quality of students work which is showcased in our faculty so well by teachers and Lisa Dale. All rooms are equipped with data projectors and we have three interactive whiteboards. The block has wireless access for use of laptops in the team room and classrooms. Administration computers are situated in the team room. In addition, a range of still and video cameras are available for class use. We have a good book stock, including an extensive collection of texts to support A level students. We encourage staff to sign up for their texts at the start of the year which allows us to share sets of books effectively we do protect some texts for particular ability groupings and allow new staff first choice! The English Faculty works closely with the librarian, Sarah Mason, to enrich the curriculum and encourage private reading. Computers and work spaces are available in the library for classes to use or for Sixth Form private study. EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES The English Faculty offers a range of extra-curricular opportunities. Pam works with our gifted and more able students to publish Snippet our school magazine which can also be viewed on-line. We also support a reading club where sixth formers listen to younger students read and help build their confidence. We run homework clubs and students are often entered for writing competitions. Alongside these, we organise trips to the theatre to see live productions and Shakespeare plays broadcast by the RSC. Film Studies students also attended the Aldeburgh Film Festival for the first time this year. Towards the exam season, we run revision sessions for all A level and GCSE subjects and we frequently offer individual support and guidance to students in need of extra confidence.

8 EXAM RESULTS AND PERFORMANCE The school is a high achieving establishment and the faculty consistently achieves good results across the three key stages. Our major focus is upon boys achievement especially at GCSE for C grade students, the achievement of weaker students and narrowing the gap for disadvantaged students.
